It depends on the business plan of the LGS, most owners I've known over time make it a point to not rely on firearms sales as their primary form of profit. The sales are just too finicky. Instead they choose to rely on other products in the store, reloading components, clothing, services provided, etc. High ticket items like firearms tend to be a slim profit margin item, hopefully they learned lessons from 2008 and are planned around it.
Too many to list...enjoy em all!
